How are we over halfway through the Fall semester? Feels like just yesterday we were ramping up. With the semester winding down, there are a few important dates to keep in mind.
Below are updates to keep you in the know about the BCoE and what to expect:
“Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty and students developed a new concrete design used in the Davis-Wade expansion, and improved for all of the Dude replacement project, that reduced cost, construction time, complexity, environmental impact, and energy use while increasing strength, durability, design life, and the use of materials originating in Mississippi.”
Dr. Jason Keith
"What I am learning in biomedical engineering helps me to better understand the science of the human body.”
Deciding on where to attend school can seem daunting, and choosing a school that is out-of-state makes it even more so. This wasn’t the case for Brooke Scardino. Brooke is a junior Biomedical Engineering student with a Pre-Medicine focus from New Orleans, Louisiana.
Brooke jumped right into the college life here at Mississippi State University. Not only is she involved inside the Bagley College of Engineering, she is involved in organizations outside of the Bagley College of Engineering. She is a member of Delta Gamma Fraternity, Student Association Senate, Dresses of Hope, the Judy and Bobby Shakouls Honors College, STEM to MBA Program, the Biomedical Engineering Association at Mississippi State (BEAM) mentoring program, and she is an Engineering Recruitment Leader. Her days are filled, but she is the perfect depiction of being an engineering student and having a life outside of the classroom along with giving back to the community.
When deciding on her major, Brooke had a very clear goal- go to medical school. In her words, she chose Biomedical Engineering because, “I am also a pre-med student, and what I am learning in biomedical engineering helps me to better understand the science of the human body.” We have seen students be very successful in Biomedical Engineering and continue on to medical school.
Here are some fun facts from Brooke:
Favorite Spot on Campus: the shaded part of the Drill Field or 3rd floor of Old Main
Favorite Place to Eat in Starkville: Arepas
Fun Fact: get involved as soon as possible. BCoE has so many organizations to be a part of. Also every type of engineering has their own study areas, so get a group of friends together to study there!!
